Tragedy has struck again near Hugo on I-35E northbound. The traffic was heavy due to construction. Apparently a 19-year-old driver was inattentive, crashing her Honda Civic into a VW Cabriolet.
The Civic was doing highway speeds and the force of the impact pushed the VW into a Ford pickup truck, which then hit the next vehicle in line, a Chevy Cobalt. The vehicles were strewn across the interstate and off the road.
The 32-year-old driver of the VW was taken to North Memorial Hospital in critical condition. She passed away early Wednesday morning. She was from Hugo. According to the State Patrol, three other people involved in the crash sustained minor injuries.
Interstate 35 northbound was shut down for three hours due to the crash. The accident is under investigation. Alcohol does not seems to be a factor in the crash.
